fastback sixxers

Post #1 by 1967JMG » Mon May 10, 2010 11:34 pm

Why is it sooo hard to find a 65-68 fastback that is a 6??? I can only assume its because everybody that gets a hold of one rips out the 6 to make an Elanor clone or something. Don't get me wrong, I love the look, but in my opinion, they are getting very played out...
I would love to find a fastback with a 6 and shock some people when they find out whats under the hood. I would even consider trading my coupe for one. lol

yeah, but no one would trade a fastback for a coupe. i know a dismantler near me that has an original t code 67 fastback he picked up for 010k. might take 12, since he could get a dynacorn for a few more and have all new steel.

It would be interesting to know how many Fastbacks had 6 cyl engines. I believe that a higher percentage of V-8's were put in the Fastbacks than in coupes, but I have never seen any documentation breaking down body style and engine combination.

The demand Mustangs was huge not sure there has been anything like it before or since. Also for the V8’s and some times they did not have enough V8’s so you had to wait or take a six package. The six powered cars are out there but just about all of them get swapped over to V8 in this area. In the 1970’s and early 80’s had several Fastbacks’ used to restore them. (2) 65, (1) 66, (2) 67, and (1) 68 all but one 65 were original V8 cars with 289's, one 67 was a GT with FE. I would like to find one for myself too so if you find someone that’s wants to trade fastbacks for coupes sign me up I will be there.

I have a 65 fastback with a six in it, just like the
one my parents bought new in the fall of 64.

You are right, when someone buys a fastback with
a six they pull it out and install a V8. in fact people
always ask me "why don't you have a V8 in there?"
I say the car came with a six when new and if I
changed it to a V8 it would be like all the others,
I want something different, besides it brings back
memories for me.

Yeah had my dad almost about to call until i dropped the $21000, for that he said ..Sadly..I would rather just get a full gt fastback..He's aslways wanted a fastback and ive seen v8 toploaders go for 19 around here..I do agree even though its fully "restored" 21k seems very high.

i think in the next 5 years or maybe even right now... an original fastback six cylinder mustang will be worth more then an original V8 . if i could afford a fastback, and someone did a 6 too v8 swap on it :bang: ... i would buy it and change it back ! :mrgreen:
